If you go to Ohio State, you’re all too familiar with the thousands of organizations OSU offers. It can be quite overwhelming to say the least.
Often students are so wrapped up in their busy lives between school projects, friends or family and work they don’t have time for additional activities. So what’s the point of getting more involved than you already are?
Building Professional Relationships
I cannot stress enough the importance of networking while you are an undergraduate student. By joining clubs related to your career, you get exposed to students, professionals and companies that will inevitably cross your path again when you’re out looking for jobs. Touring companies, talking to people with more experience than you and creating connections with other students all help you get in at companies post graduation because these actions help you to make connections with the people that matter.
